wow kaisermetal, my feelings exactly.
Living in Germany, where MMA is an exotic martial art still, I know a few fighters from other disciplines who don't like MMA yet refer to themselves as martial artists. To them, I usually say they miss a time that shall be known in the future as a golden age age of martial arts, happening right now, under their very closed eyes.
MMA changed so much in so little time. Transcending pure styles, building legends, modern gladiators who sythesised all kinds of classical arts of physical confrontation.

As the clear favourites (?) for the next fight day are Overeem and Barnett, this GP remains quite international: Brazil, Russia, USA, Holland.
No wrestlers, btw.
